Those who experience crime are not a monolith, and many victims of crime can experience multiple types of victimization. A one size fits all approach leaves many victims without the services and support they need. Service providers need to understand poly-victimization and how it impacts survivors’ experiences with the justice system and work to find the right resources and support mechanisms to serve victims best.
During this webinar, participants will:
- Begin to understand how poly-victimization plays a role in how victims interact with the justice system.
- Identify how the intersection of poly-victimization and victim services creates gaps in service for victims.
- Identify three strategies service providers can use to unite allied partners to ensure victims and survivors experiencing poly-victimization get the support they need.
